Mix salt and black pepper in a bowl. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add the Sioux Z Wow, sugar and water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the almonds and cook, constantly stirring until the mixture (sauce) thickens and sticks to the nuts. (About 5 minutes). Sprinkle with half of the salt and pepper mixture and stir to incorporate throughout.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Coat it lightly with butter.
Transfer the nut mixture to the baking sheet. Working quickly with a rubber spatula, spread and separate the nuts across the pan.
Sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper mixture over the top evenly.
Once cooled, the nuts can be broken into sections like brittle and stored in air tight containers. Offer at your party along with a glass of nice champagne!!
